๐Ÿ’ž Why We Celebrate St. Valentine's Day

You may be wondering why we celebrate love on February 14th? According to History.com, a poet named Geoffrey Chaucer may have started this tradition when he wrote: โ€œFor this was sent on Seynt Valentyneโ€™s day / Whan every foul cometh ther to choose his mate.โ€

There are no records of this holiday being celebrated prior to 1375, which was around the time that Chaucer penned this poem.

There was, however, a real St. Valentine, in fact, more than one. Several martyrs have gone by the name of Saint Valentine, and a few were beheaded for healing the sick or helping Christian couples to wed, back when Christians were being executed for their faith in Rome.

St. Valentine is considered the patron saint of married and engaged couples, as well as epileptics and beekeepers. Talk about a diversified group!

So, whether you're celebrating Valentine's Day with your favorite person, best friend, or with your fur babies, give one or more of these Valentine's desserts a try! Happy Valentine's Day from me to you!
